Some thing I got to go with my Czech Longines

Post by River Rat » Sat Oct 29, 2016 7:20 pm

Some times I add stuff to go with some of my issued watches. I got this Czech pilots badge we call wings in our military. These wings were issued just after WW2 so goes with the time frame of my Czech Longines made in 1946

The issue numbers on the back of the badge.

The issue numbers on the back of my Longines the 9 is about the same on both so looks like it mite be the same time frame both were engraved. Been looking for one for a fair price got it for 20 bucks off fleabay. At a military site on the net they wanted over a 200 bucks for the same one with same factory stamp on the back so got a sleeper.
